The Belt and Road Initiative, as it is sometimes also called, requires China to invest heavily in infrastructure and development across three continents to facilitate trade for China.Below, a map of the land and sea routes President Xi Jinping hopes China will control at the end of the project (via Chinese state outlet China Daily).

Inside their Ohio home, Sainawar Rouzi and her son Nisham, 23, roll out a poster they had made to show the names and faces of their family members they believe to have gone missing into the dark abyss of shadowy “concentration camps” in China. (Fox News/Hollie McKay) CINCINNATI, Ohio – They may be sitting some 6,800 miles away, but the pain of one Chinese Uighur family in exile remains just as visceral and raw as it was back in their homeland. “My family never did anything wrong.
